IMPLEMENTATION OF THE OPTIMAL THEORY OF MOTOR LEARNING IN PLYOMETRIC EXERCISES TO IMPROVE LONG JUMP RESULTS
This study aims to determine the effect of implementing The OPTIMAL theory of motor learning on Plyometric Exercises to Improve Long Jump Results. This study used a test-experiment with the research design "Single-Group Pretest-Posttest Design". This study involved 40 samples from male and female students who were then divided into a training group (Group A) totaling 20 samples and a control group (Group B) totaling 20 samples through random sampling technique by drawing lots. The instrument used was the Long Jump Test. Prior to testing the hypothesis, the Liliefors test was used to test whether the data was normally distributed and the Bartllet test was used to test homogeneity. Then an effect test (t-test) was carried out with the help of the Statistical Product and Service Solutions (SPSS) version 22 application. The results of the study can be concluded that; 1) there is a significant difference between the pretest and posttest of the OPTIMAL theory of motor learning-based plyometric exercise group. 2) There is a significant difference between the posttest (after treatment) Plyometric Exercise Based on The OPTIMAL theory of motor learning and the control group in increasing long jump results.
